    They have the big fat grey toolbar and then underneath the thin main navigation strip with dinky little icons? Chuck out that big grey header, it’s holding the whole thing back!

    I like how they have grouped by Music, TV Shows, Movies, etc and then inside that have choices for going between My Music and iTunes Store. But it’s executed badly, it feels unbalanced and confusing.

    The centred area at the top where the currently played song shows – which has been around since iTunes launched – is only useful for audio. I remember playing a video a few times in iTunes and that area had the time scrubber active, and it felt so tacked on.

    iTunes now covers audio, video, ebooks, apps. I’d look into making that the most prominent navigation at the top of the window, make the icons bigger, add text labels. If I’m in the Music section, then show me the traditional iTunes jukebox stuff with the now playing, play/rewind controls, volume slider.
